Norwin America LLC, a wind turbine manufacturer, with principal facilities in Roskilde, Denmark, has commissioned a 29-Stall-225 kW wind turbine for the McEvoy Ranch in Pateluma, Calif.

The 148-foot 225 kW Norwin wind turbine will meet the existing electricity demand of the ranch, including powering its olive oil mill.

Construction support for the project was provided by enXco and Morita Construction, also California-based companies. A dedication event was hosted by McEvoy on June 10, in which they debuted their limited edition 2009 olive oil with a new wind turbine label.

An analysis of the McEvoy project by county staff found no significant environmental impacts, and a 2006 Point Reyes Bird Observatory study concluded that "negative impacts to raptor populations are unlikely."

The McEvoy wind turbine is the second agricultural wind turbine to be approved and operating in Marin County. A 50 kW wind turbine has been generating power at Devil's Gulch Ranch in Nicasio for a year. A large part of the wind turbine was paid for by the California Self Generation Incentive Program.

Norwin is a wind turbine supplier and technology company that has worked on projects around the world, including a wind-powered skyscraper in Bahrain.
